Week 9 DraftKings Quarterback Plays
Cash Games – Dak Prescott ($6,700)
Prescott is the fourth-highest priced quarterback on DraftKings but will likely still be one of the highest owned in week 9. Facing a very beatable Chiefs pass defense (ranked 30th in the league) without Ezekiel Elliott, Dak is in a great situation for elite fantasy production. Because of last week’s dud at Washington, Prescott’s price tag of $6,700 is the cheapest it has been on DraftKings since Week 4. In his four games prior to last week, Prescott scored no fewer than 22.92 fantasy points. Dak is hot and his arm/legs will be needed more than ever in a coin flip game that has the highest total on the board in Vegas (52 points). With an extremely high floor and ceiling, you really would be doing yourself a disservice by overthinking this one in cash games. Prescott could be propelling himself into super-stardom in this second half of the season.
GPP – Jacoby Brissett ($5,200)
Brissett has really looked like a legit NFL starter in the past few weeks. Possessing a strong, accurate arm with the ability to tuck it in and run, Brissett might be best described as a pass-first Cam Newton. I mean, he did transfer from Florida after all. Now with the reins to lead the offense the rest of the season, Brissett has a great chance to show the rest of the NFL (and his future team) what he’s got. With a long leash, no pressure, and motivation to succeed, Brissett could be a low-key QB1 for the rest of the season. Facing a weak 28th-ranked Houston defense, Brissett will have a high ceiling and a relatively low-ownership percentage. A stack with T.Y. Hilton is highly recommended and game flow suggests the Colts defense at an absurdly low $2,000 against Tom Savage is almost a must-play.
